Power generation, transmission peak at all time high – TCN

The electricity transmission company in the country has reported yet another improved all-time national peak of 5,420.30MW, which was effectively transmitted through the national grid at a frequency of 50.10Hz at 9:15pm, August 18, 2020.

Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) in a statement Thursday said, this is the highest ever recorded in the nation’s power sector to-date, surpassing the previous peak of 5,377.80MW recorded on the 1st of August, 2020, by 42.50MW.

It said the gradual but steady improvement in electricity delivery in the nation’s power sector is attributable to the keen interest of the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in piloting programmes and projects geared towards growing the power sector as well as the collective effort of all power sector players in the value chain.

Nigeria has engaged German company, Siemens AG, to help revamp the struggling power infrastructure in the country.

The TCN says it is committed to working assiduously to further stabilize, rehabilitate and expand the grid and urge Nigerians to lend their support by safeguarding electricity installations nationwide.
